I was once naïve enough to think that unrequited love is that the worst reasonable love. What could possibly be more soul-crushing than pouring all of your love into an individual and watching them pass it on to someone else? What could possibly be more heart-wrenching than writing love letters for an individual who thought of somebody else while reading them?
Then I met my soulmate. Our first conversation felt like two old friends catching up after a protracted time and learning from where they left off. It seemed as if our souls had known one another in a very different life and had now recognized one another during a surreal backdrop.
How lucky do two people need to be to fall for every other at precisely the right time in just the correct way? We were the lucky ones for an instant in time that I wish had stood frozen. We defied the percentages.
Then we said goodbye. Our first conversation became our only conversation nose to nose. We slowly drifted apart until we both decided it was better to steer our separate paths than to stay causing one another pain.
I am now wise enough to understand that the worst reasonable love is truly the love with the proper person at the incorrect time. it’s the love with the person they call ‘The One That Got Away.’ it’s the love that’s mutual but evanescent.
We think after we are young that we are going to connect with many folks across our lives. it’s only as we age that we realize how rare it’s to seek out someone who understands our mind and soul. we’ve got become so acquainted with wearing our masks that it feels almost strange to fulfill someone that we don’tmust hide from in any way.
I have always held the idea that there’s no such thing as right timing. Someone will either want to fulfill you halfway across the bridge or they’re going to find excuses to stay you waiting.
But what if this person is simply too scared to step the bridge because they need to be pushed over the sting before? What if they’re hesitant to require a leap of religion because they need not be caught before?
It is not your job to convince anyone to satisfy you halfway across the bridge. it’s also not your job to stay waiting if it impinges on your mental peace. you’ve got every right to steer away when the wait becomes unbearable.
But what if you cross paths with the proper person once again? What if your soul recognizes their soul everywhere again? What if the second goodbye hurts the maximum amount because of the first one?
You find yourself hoping that the celebs will align now around and love will finally fall in your favor. Perhaps you may be ready to sit with them and laugh over the pain you caused one another in the past. Perhaps you may bring back the one that got away.
Or perhaps not.
Perhaps you’d allow them to go now for the sake of their happiness. you’d leave behind the toxicity and bitterness while embracing peace and acceptance. you’d wish them the simplest for or their future and remember them in your prayers.
We aren’t always speculated to find ourselves with our soulmates and that we can find solace therein fact. a minimum of we were lucky enough to fulfill them. we all know that they exist.
Perhaps you were meant to satisfy the proper person another time so you may save your memories from being tarnished forever. Perhaps you’ll remind yourself that you simply didn’t imagine them. They were real.
They were the foremost real being you have got ever known.
